Radical Firearms announced a new line of low cost sound suppressors for the shooting public. There are four “cans” in this lineup and cover both rimfire and centerfire rifle calibers. Here is a quick look at what the company is now offering:
RF 7.62 SS Suppressor
This sub-$500 suppressor is made of stainless steel and finished in a high temperature Cerakote process. It is about 9″ long and has a diameter of 1.5″. It weighs about 23.6 ounces and fits threaded barrels with a 5/8×24 pattern. As the name suggests, it is rated for .308 Win and similar calibers. The suggested retail price is $499.99.
RF 5.56 Direct Thread Suppressor
Another thread on suppressor, the Radical Firearms 5.56 DT can has the same diameter as the 7.62 above, but is slightly shorter at only 7″ long. Rated for the 5.56 NATO cartridge, the suppressor is 22.2 ounces in weight. It is threaded for 1/2×28 and carries a suggested retail price of $399.99.
RF 22 LR Direct Thread Suppressor
This suppressor is designed for rimfire cartridges and has a size and weight that reflects that. It is 5.5″ long with a diameter of less than one inch. The weight is a reasonable 6 ounces and the price is fairly attractive at $219.99. It can be disassembled for cleaning and is finished in high temp Cerakote.
RD 22 LR Integrally Suppressed Barrel
Last, but not least, in the new line is a replacement Ruger 10/22 barrel that includes integral suppression. The unit is user-serviceable and is a direct replacement for the factory barrel. The assembly weighs 1.5 pounds and costs $399.99 retail. Although the details are slightly different, this appears to be the same suppressor I wrote about in October.
